Winner of the Petersen’s Hunting Editor’s Choice Award, TenPoint Crossbow’s Carbon Nitro RDX is one of four new crossbows from the company in 2016.
The crossbow features TenPoint’s highly successful wrapped carbon fiber barrel and a newly engineered carbon fiber-infused polymer stock

The 20-inch wrapped carbon fiber barrel dramatically reduces weight, noise, and vibration. It is equipped with a 4.5-inch bullpup version of the company’s 3.5 pound T3 auto-engaging safety trigger housed in a lightweight machined aluminum trigger box.
Its weaver-style dovetail is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to further reduce noise and vibration. The three-piece C3 stock also reduces weight, vibration, and noise, and is fitted with an adjustable cheek piece (comb) and butt plate to create perfect eye-level alignment and length-of- pull.
The ultra-narrow RDX bow assembly measures 10-inches axle-to-axle when cocked. Its machined, lightweight aluminum riser is fitted with TenPoint’s Over-the- Top limb pocket and Zytel Limb Suspension System that both separates and isolates the limbs from direct contact with the riser to reduce sound and vibration.
The bow assembly’s 13-inch 165-pound limbs are powered by the bow’s custom RDX Cam System and DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables.
The bow and stock assemblies combine to create a perfectly balanced precision hunting machine that weighs 7.8 pounds, measures only 34.25-inches long, and shoots a supercharged 385 feet per second.
In addition, like all TenPoint models, the Carbon Nitro RDX model is equipped with rubber safety wings that help prevent a shooter’s foregrip fingers and thumb from moving above the flight deck while shooting the crossbow.
Equipped with the patented ACUdraw, or packaged with the NEW Dedd Sled 50 cocking mechanism, and illuminated RangeMaster Pro Scope, the Carbon Nitro RDX is double-dip fluid imaged in Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo and sells only as a complete package.
